  1. Content Refresh

    Am new with Yodeck but I would like to see either faster loading of new/changed content over typical client wifi speeds OR some way to blank the screen while new imagery is loaded. My experience so far (limited I admit) leads me to think my shows are amateurish when I have to look at periods where things are sequentially being blacked out and sequentially replaced.Makes me think of the old days when things like this were really slow. Surely there is a better way in 2018.

    I guess you are talking about transition from one show to another. This will be significantly improve really soon. We are working on an improved version of the playback engine that will allow much faster transitions.

    Stay tuned to see it get released!

  2. Playlist: import only the files that are not yet present, to avoid duplications.

    You can select all the files in a folder and import. But when you add a lot of files to a folder and you want to add only those in the playlist it becomes laborious to look for them one by one.

    We have released a new feature called Tag Playlists. You assign Media with Tags and then you can create dynamic Playlists using combinations of Media Tags. Then, when you upload a Media, you also add the required Tags, so that they get pulled into the Tag Playlists.

    That might work in your case.

    In the long run, we are also planning to provide Folder-based Playlists, so that all Media in the specific Folders are automatically included in a Playlist.

  3. Auto-push when changes are released from the queue.

    Mark changes to be pushed when done rendering. It sometimes takes hours for changes to make it through the queue and be ready to push. I'd like an option to have changes automatically push when ready.

    Yes, we do support Chinese (and other) character sets. By default, we have not included Chinese support because the fonts are really big and would use too much storage on the SD card.

    If you need Chinese, please contact us and we will set up Chinese fonts in your Players.

    Eventually, we do plan to include support for all characters. We will be changing the ticker rendering code to support HTML, so all fonts will be eventually supported with the best possible way.

    Right now, the ticker is generated via a Python drawing library and the images are scrolled using the GPU. We plan to change this to HTML-based drawing of the ticker. We could then add an option for providing custom CSS styling for the text. I guess this should work fine for you.

  6. Playlist "currently playing" and countdown

    show screen number when playing items in playlist, now showing n of x , and possibly a timer couting down to next item.

    Showing Playlist-level and item-level progress could be useful. Although not a high-priority, we will be adding this.

    We are also adding native PDF support shortly, so this will be beneficial in case of text content.

  7. Length of Video Media

    Would be nice to see the length of a video from the folder view.

    Indeed, provide metadata for Media would be really useful. Besides video duration, it would be really useful to also know video resolution, FPS, download size, average bitrate, etc.

    Our encoding backend has been modified to provide all of this information to the Yodeck Portal. So, this will be provided soon.

  8. Premade Footer Scrollers

    Provide some premade scrolling footer content -
    Weather - enter ZipCode;
    Stock - select up to x stock symbols;
    Latest News (like Fox News Channel);
    Airport info;
